The Gear Used
Everything in Vocal Phrases Volume 1 has been treated with an assortment of analog gear. Starting with Meems vocal chain, the mic is the Shure SM7b (a studio standard) into an RND517 Mic Preamp. Then into a Pete's Place BAC500 FET compressor (gives that 1176 feel). Then into a Buzz Audio Essence Opto compressor for that gentle squeeze. And finally into a Purple Audio Lil PEQr for some extra analog vibe.
The drums were an Arturia Drum Brute Impact that got extra grit from a Purple Audio Action FET compressor. Followed into a Drawmer 1978 or a bit more hair. Followed into an A Designs EM-PEQ shelving EQ to taste.
The bass synth is the Behringer Model D, which most people know the sound of already. It got a taste of the API 525 legendary compressor. Followed into a Drawmer 1968 for a bit more Tube compression. Finished with a Tonelux EQP5.
Two other synths were used for the samples. The first is the Sequential Pro 3. This got a extra compression from a Buzz Audio SOC-20 Opto compressor. The mid-side processor was used heavily on it.
The second synth was the Novation Summit. This also got a Buzz Audio compressor, the DBC-20 Diode bridge compressor.
Finally, all samples in the pack were finished off with our analog summing chain. The samples were sent our with a MOTU 24ao interface into a Burl Audio Vancouver B32 summing box with the transformers engaged and being hit just enough. After the Burl, the signal was sent into a WesAudio _DIONE VCA compressor. And finally finished off with a WesAudio _PROMETHEUS buss EQ. Both WesAudio units has the THD set to medium. The audio was captured with a mastering grade ADC, the Mytek Brooklyn ADC.
Lots of juicy analog transformers getting engaged throughout the recording process. Even more details can be found in this video.
